(U) Drop diameters from 2.7 mm to 4.6 mm are common in heavy rainfall. The impact and bubble signals of the underwater sound radiation from these large drops at their terminal velocities have been identified. At a 1 MHz sampling rate, several notches are observed in the approximately 100 microns per second duration impact signal. These notches with time separations of 3 to 4 microns per second between peak and trough, are shown to be caused by internal drop reflections of the impact pressure...

Ship silencing is an important issue of modern naval warfare. For a long time, naval ship engineers have tried to reduce the noise from the vibration of shipboard components. Ths is important for a ship to accomplish its mission with good survivability. One method, called constrained viscoelastic layer method, uses shear deformation in viscoelastic material to absorb and dissipate the vibrational energy of the system. It shows promise in damping over a broad frequency spectrum of vibration. A...

VHDL can be used to do behavioral modeling which is desirable in top-down system design. A cost function calculation in a graph partition algorithm is used here as an example to test the VHDL design methodology. Subroutines or statements in the software can be implemented into hardware if the subroutines or the statements in that software are suitably grouped. While...

Job satisfaction has been linked to many variables, such as turnover, absenteeism, and productivity. Job satisfaction has rarely, however, been related to the quality of work that is produced on the job. At the various Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) throughout the country, it is the quality of work rather than the quantity of work that is the critical issue. This study first examines the organizational structure and the duties and responsibilities of a MEPS, and then examines the...
